for your first wedding... it's pretty solid. It'll take a few to get use to it and then let your creativity fly.

Ok, some quick comments - I'd remove the border on image #1. Also, the others are too tight for my liking. Especially the first one - they could be kissing anywhere. But, they were at a wedding, so show that they were at a wedding.

Thanks Inku, that first one was something I had trouble doing something with. The chapel they were in was basically that off-white wall. I'll see what else I can do with it...I added the border around it to add some type of additional interest.

Unless you are doing some artistic shot.. you almost want to always avoid dappled sun like that in front of your subject or sometime anywhere on the framing.

Thanks Robin. Yes that was sun shining in through the leaves. I suppose if I had a large diffuser to hold up in front of them, this could have been somewhat avoided. I will keep that in mind.

Ok, going off that first image again - something that Jerry Ghionis told me - it's not the kiss that's the sexiest, it's the moment just before the kiss. See how their faces are smashed together? It's not all that attractive.

It's kind of like women's lingerie - we know what's under there, but it's the anticipation that turns us on.

^ This

Since this thread and thinking it over many times, I've certainly found examples where the full kiss works.

But IMHO the most consistent money shot is the 0.015 of a second before.

We probably need an emoticon that captures that.

:o\o: maybe?

Nice set, with a lot of kissing. One piece of advice, the moment right before the kiss, the anticipation -- way better. Give that a try next time.

Perhaps this is more or less the moment before the kiss:
